This shows distinctly where the winds are centered at




In the interest of accuracy, the image posted above is not an actual Scatterometer, but rather much more of an artistic "composite" based very much on assumptions of where an Invest is located at any given time, put together with the "sketchy" (pardon the pun) wind scats of the past 24 hours, or so.


You can see CIRA's entire public suite here:
http://rammb.cira.colostate.edu/products...ND_200906281800, and you can read about how this image is created here. Note: Not only is the Multi-Platform Tropical Cyclone Surface Wind Analysis product a guestimate based on dated Scat passes, but it is also compiled using wind data from the mid-levels adjusted to the surface. In poorly developed and disorganized features, such as this (extremely poorly organized feature, really) the mid level circulation is often actually well-separated from any surface circulation (if and when there is one). Consequently, extrapolating a mid-level circulation to the surface as a way of determining the location of a given feature is often a bad idea.

An alternate source, much more accurate than artistic renditions, can be found at NRL: This link contains the most recent Scat image available (ERS-2), from a pass at 1624Z. At that time there was absolutely no indication of a closed surface circulation, whatsoever.

Hope that helps!
